Who we are
Friends ‘n’ Stuff is a social business run by Friends-International which enables parents across Southeast Asia to generate an income. These parents become part of our home-based production team – they are equipped with the skills to create the products you see at our stores!
Our shops are based on the Home Based Production and Training program which was created in 2005 in order to find a sustainable way to provide economic support to marginalized families. The project provides market-linked skills training and subsequent employment opportunities to parents of vulnerable children as a means of reducing incidences of child labor and ensuring that children receive a formal education.
